Solipsis is a physically punishing underworld which dwells between life and death. Where the boundaries between light and dark, love and loss, pleasure and pain, have broken down and the subconscious rules. It is where our deepest secrets, our horrors and desires, live and never stop. A world without language, without pre-conception, without limits.
Through live improvised sound and physical performance, photography, installation and poetry, Solipsis is a hybrid experiential event in which anything is possible.
Spontaneous and affective, Solipsis stirs the grotesque, horrifying and dark animal hidden within us all.
